HOUSTONTexas (KIAH) Owners of 2021 Subaru Impreza should leave the vehicle parked.  The Subaru of America has issued a “do not drive recall” for the 802 Model Year 2021 Impreza vehicles. 

According to the NHTSA, a lower control arm weld on the front driver’s side may fail on affected vehicles. They say if this happens, the tire could contact the wheel well, resulting in a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.

You can visit or call NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 and enter their 17-digit vehicle identification number to see if your vehicle is under recall.  You can also contact Subaru’s customer service at 844-373-6614.
